Will a CCTV Drain Survey in London mean excavating my garden?

At Drainsmart, we have over 120 years of combined experience in the drainage industry - this has been our trade for decades and have helped all manner of customers with their drain repairs. We are also a top provider of CCTV drain surveys in London, a drainage service which provides homeowners and landlords with an inside look at their drains, essential to fully understand any issues and problems which may be located within.

CCTV Drain Surveys involve cameras being inserted into the pipes of a property, recording footage of the inside, which can then be examined by drainage engineers who will be able to look for anomalies such as:

  • Cracked pipes

  • Infestation

  • Blockages

  • Gaps in pipework

At Drainsmart, our CCTV drain surveys in London start from just £175 (plus VAT). This is our most common package, which covers up to 3 manholes.

Will you have to dig up my garden?

Access to the drains is found through manholes or rodding access points, which are often easy to locate at a lot of properties. We may need to excavate or make a cut into above-ground external pipework to gain entry and we will reinstate the pipework and the surface area upon completion. We will only do this if we absolutely have to, as we have TrapJumper cameras which have been designed to bypass gully and WC rest bends.

What happens after the CCTV Drain Survey?

You will be provided with a professional report from the Drainsmart team, and should any further actions be needed we will be able to discuss those with you.
